Review: Blushing Violet by Ann Mayburn

 Blushing Violet
by Ann Mayburn

BLUSHING VIOLET is my first Ann Mayburn read. Right of the bat, I knew I would enjoy her books. I love her writing style and felt that she did a really good job of writing Violet’s POV. Violet is a closet submissive. Her parents are a little judgemental so she hides this part of herself from others for fear of being judge as something other than curious. Tired of being told how to live, Violet takes the leap and posts her profile on an online dating site where she has to lists some of her favorite books to come up with matches.

Two best friends come up on her list – Carlos and Morgan. Both are dominants and unwilling to give the other guy a chance at being with Violet. So they decide to see her both separately and leave the choice up to her.

This book is a very short one, which is why I feel like everything was very rushed. The sex is hot, but quick. The bonds forged between Dom and sub are done quickly and don’t always feel so strong. However, given the number of pages this book is, it’s totally understandable. As my first Ann Mayburn read, I knew that this would be a start of a new obsession. I liked Mayburn’s voice enough to check out some of her others books. Hopefully, I’ll enjoy those ones too.

I'm so glad you liked it, Ann. :) Most especially, I'm glad Violet's POV came through. I'm used to writing more headstrong women so I'm glad her gentle voice came through.
